Why are Christians attacking Muslims in America?


Why Are Conservatives Targeting Muslims? And Why Now?

Now that the so-called Ground Zero Mosque controversy is slipping off the front pages for the first time in weeks, it’s time to ask: Just what the hell was all that about, anyway? Why was it so important that we had to spend all that time discussing it? And why are the conservatives taking out after the Muslim community now — nine full years after 9/11?

By now, it’s pretty obvious that this was never really about sacred ground or respecting the memories of the dead. What it was really about was the future of the conservative movement.

Where Have All The Bad Guys Gone?

Conservatives can do without a god, but they can’t get through the day without a devil. Their entire model of reality revolves around the existence of an existential enemy who’s out to annihilate them. Take that focal point away, and their whole worldview collapses into incoherence. This need is so central to their thinking that if there are no actual enemies around, they’ll go to considerable lengths to make some (or just make some up).

Christians need someone to hate and attack.

    Oh man, attempting to pass of a Huff post contributor as relevant. The atheist/liberal world is hurting with November coming so they must demonize their enemy at every possible turn.

    These are the same people who cry over baby Jesus in the town square so nuff said.

    It is all they have. In order to dodge the issues, they must go personal. The issues will get them beat. Not to mention they are completely clueless about what Islam is all about. You would think murdering woman, gays and children would be some of there pet causes, but alas only when it is politically beneficial.
